Year-End Review, With Yourself
An interesting article my dad sent me: http://shiftingcareers.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/12/26/year-end-review-with-yourself/

Research shows that people who write out specific goals tend to be more successful in accomplishing things, whatever the nature of their objectives. But goals sometimes have a straight-from-central-casting quality: lose weight, exercise more, save more money, etc. They’re nice goals, but are they really the most important ones for you? Goals are more meaningful when they result from your taking stock of where you actually are, which requires you to think about how your life has developed over the past year. Goals are also a good thing to look at come year-end.

My goals are to not kill anyone else (and get caught) or myself (without killing everyone else first).

Yes, but did you draw little flowers around them?

Hey! I loved this entry and then I clicked your link and loved it all the more. Thank you! And happy new year to you.

You are welcome! I'd be interested to see which ones you drew flowers around and which ones you didn't :)

I drew happy arrows all pointing outward around law school!

And I'm astonished how unimportant the various men I've dated are. Seriously. Some not even mentioned, and not a one of them underlined. On the other hand, my lady friends got hearts. So. :)

I still have to do that exercise myself, but that's pretty interesting - esp about the guys!
